Subject: Bird Song>LIG>Deal
This sequence is excellent, with some fine playing by all. The Bird Song in particular is a standout, rivaling some of the fantastic versions from March. Though the jam is a bit on the short side, the flow and energy are palpable, with Garcia weaving his usual melodic magic.

Subject: primed Jerry, but to what effect
Jerry was feeling quite well, but he wasn't working with a whole lot of support. Let It Grow, Deal and Terrapin are highlights.

Subject: iko iko ah day
I would add that the iko out'v space is very nice. Youtube video of the whole show shows it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ns4osAAcYCs

Subject: Solid '81 show.
This is a really nice '81 with some definite terrific moments. In particual.

First Set:

CC Rider, while not a favorite of mine, caught my attention as a pretty hot rendition.

Friend of the Devil is highlight of the show. Jerry rips it to shreds and from the first note to the last it pleases the ears.

Mexacali, Bird Song and Let it
Grow all have real nice guitar leads.

Second Set:

Terrapin nice.

Lost/Saint is really tight and strong.

The Stella Blue is primo.

Overall, a very good '81 performance with excellent recording quality. The more I listen to this year, the more I like it.
